Direct Support Professionals @ Bethesda Lutheran Communities
Direct Support Professionals Needed
Bethesda is a faith-based provider of support services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We work to enhance the lives of the people we support. In Minnesota we currently serve individuals in a group home setting in Victoria as well as Coon Rapids and Blaine. Our employees get to see people learn and grow, while building relationships. Our employees make a difference in the quality of life for people with disabilities.
At Bethesda you will provide very hands on support, including helping with personal routines and sharing meals. You will also bring verbal, emotional, and spiritual care, which is key to the individuals enjoying quality of life and reaching for their dreams. The ideal candidates have excellent people skills and can be counted on working well with limited supervision but as part of a team. We reimburse you for your own costs when taking individuals out to eat, to plays, sporting events, etc. We also provide company vehicles while working!
Our wages start at $11.50/hr. and increase with experience. In addition to our hourly rate we also have a sign on bonus of $1000-$1500 (call for details), a bonus for working overnights and weekends, as well as a quarterly bonus based on your regularly scheduled hours. We offer flexible, part time schedules that work well for students: if you are flexible you can get 15-40 hrs each week and adjust your schedule each semester as needed.
